Aviva Drescher, formerly of The Real Housewives of New York City cast, says reality TV ruined her marriage ... on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp!

Aviva Drescher's Leg

The 44-year-old mother of four will seek counseling with her banker husband Reid on next year’s highly-anticipated Reality Stars edition of the WE tv series.

Bravo reportedly fired Aviva Drescher from The Real Housewives of NYC this summer, and her marriage has been on the rocks due to her self-induced crises.

Whether going on another reality show is really a smart remedy if TV "ruined" your union in the first place is an ironic question she has not addressed.

“Her affinity for being famous, her cruel new TV friends and destructive self internet searches are driving a wedge between them,” a press release states.

“Aviva cannot ready a single thing without taking it to heart," the teaser for the new season hilariously goes on, "and Reid is tired of living in her drama.”

That last part we can believe.

Aviva Drescher has been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City after two seasons on the Bravo series, according to multiple reports.

The New York Post mentioned Aviva's departure in an article also stating that Helena Christensen is joining the cast for its upcoming season.

Drescher, 45, an author, amputee and married mother of four, will be best remembered for her leg-throwing incident on the sixth season finale:

The shocking Aviva Drescher leg throwing incident occurred after co-stars accused her of lying and faking her illnesses to beg out of several cast trips.

"The only thing fake about me," Drescher snapped, yanking off her prosthetic leg, "is this!" She slammed the limb on the table, then flung it across a restaurant.

Rumors that Bravo executives wanted Aviva Drescher fired had been flying well before this incident, so that wasn't necessarily the root cause. 

If anything, it brought quite a bit of buzz to the beleaguered show.

The Real Housewives of New York City cast may not be in for a good housecleaning after all, according to a new report that indicates ALL of the stars will return.

Real Housewives of New York City Season Season 6 Cast

“The cast members aren’t fired,” a source close to the Bravo production tells Radar. “There’s zero fact to it. Every year they say people will be fired."

"They’ll put that out there in the news because they always need new girls.”

Of course, Radar's one of the most notorious celebrity gossip outlets when it comes to the Real Housewives "hot stove" season, guessing who's in and who's out.

The bottom line? All cast members are on one-year deals, so it's easy to speculate on impending moves. They are, by definition, on the chopping block every year.

At the same time, most of them love the money and fame and come back.

Recent reports that Ramona Singer could be the only one left standing after Season 6 were premature, in other words. As of now, no one has been fired.

“Cast mates do not get fired without anyone knowing,” added the source.

On part three of three of 2014's The Real Housewives of New York City reunion, Aviva Drescher found herself under fire for ... well, pretty much everything.

So many things that this special hardly revolved around Ramona Singer!

From BookGate to LegGate to George Teichner getting married, it's been all about Aviva these days. Has it been worth it? How do the other ladies feel?

Aviva, who mocked Carole's age at the peak of BookGate, takes issue with Heather's "ghetto" language, saying that this is The Hamptons, not The Hood.

Heather says Aviva is ignorant, rude and perpetuating stereotypes. Oof.

At least Sonja Morgan can forgive Aviva for being so mean to her last season because she's a "Christian woman." That is just hilarious for so many reasons.

Ramona then wonders what makes Aviva turn on people. When Ramona is wondering that about someone else, you know you have some issues.

In the wake of Ramona Singer's divorce announcement, the father of one Real Housewives of New York City co-star is weighing in on its inevitability.

According to George Teichner, Aviva Drescher's dad and a newlywed himself, Ramona has taught him what precisely what NOT to do in a relationship.

  • Ramona, Mario Singer
  • George Teichner, Dana Cody

“Reality TV marriages and spectacle marriages become a ‘Dance of Dread,’” Teichner said, explaining his and Cody’s decision to keep their  wedding private.

“Why the incognito personal life? ‘Those whom the Gods will destroy ... they first make proud! Just review all the married couples on all reality TV shows."

“You will discover a disproportionate amount of acrimony and mental suffering, along with addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and pharmaceutical brain tablets"

"I.e. [the] Kardashians, Ramona [Singer].”

Likening his co-star's issues to Keeping Up With the Kardashians? Kind of a low blow, but there is something to be said about keeping things private.

The Real Housewives of New York City star Aviva Drescher didn't snub father George Teichner's wedding, she says. On the contrary, THEY snubbed her.

And everyone else. By eloping!

As previously reported, George Teichner married Dana Cody last weekend. Given the 51-year age difference (76 to 25!), Aviva and others have been skeptical.

Just the same, she swears she's come around, that she wishes them well, and that she truly had no idea about the wedding until it was a done deal.

"I am so happy for my father and Cody! They did get married! They eloped!" Aviva says, quelling gossip about why she didn't attend the Malibu nuptials.

Dana Cody also defended Aviva:

"@avivadrescher was not the ONLY "NO SHOW"..because we DID NOT TELL ANYONE!!!!" the bride Tweeted. "Neither family members were aware!!"

Part two of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion show really ramped up the intensity last night, thanks especially to Ramona Singer.

When host Andy Cohen asked Ramona about her divorce from husband Mario and the current state of the longtime duo's relationship, Singer bristled.

"Everyone in my family is doing well," Singer said, declining to elaborate because of her daughter. "Mario and I are together … Let's go to someone else."

"Thanks, Andy," she added, clearly annoyed this subject even came up.

When Cohen tried to push the envelope, Ramona pushed back harder: "So, how's your love life? Who are you going to have sex with tonight? Tell me."

"I'll tell you when I go on a reality show," Cohen said.

"You're on a reality show," Singer told her producer.

She publicly supported her father George Teichner’s engagement to Dana Cody, but Aviva Drescher wasn't enough of a fan to attend the wedding, it turns out.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 43, was nowhere in sight when Teichner, 76, traded vows with Cody, 25, in Malibu, Calif., on Sunday.

Aviva Drescher, Father

In the past, she's said of the couple, “I believe that Cody and my father are truly in love, and while it may be unconventional, I support my father.”

George Teichner, meanwhile, has called the relationship “ecstasy.”

“We are happily immersed in an oblivion wrought by joy!” George said of his bride. “When you’re ready for it to happen, love hits you like a ton of bricks.”

While Aviva wasn't there to throw her leg, Dana Cody dressed in a traditional white gown with matching sandals, while Teichner wore a dapper suit.

Here's wishing the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness with no limbs winged in their direction in a restaurant by Cody's unpredictable stepdaughter:

On part one of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion, Sonja Morgan was the primary target of the group, which is an impressive feat for her.

After all, Aviva Drescher threw her leg in the season finale.

That topic was not far from anyone's mind, clearly, but Morgan was the woman called “delusional” by virtually every other cast member in attendance.

When Morgan claimed that her husband worked for Diddy and that Diddy was on her yacht, they jumped on her to remind her that she doesn't have a yacht.

Fond memories of a bygone era.

This was definitely the theme of the evening on Bravo; Kristen Teakman got so fired up about it that she jumped up and started singing, “delusional.”

It was a pretty terrific song that almost makes it worth your while to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online just for that particular scene.

It's not often that one encounters someone taking off their prosthetic leg, bang it on the table and throw it across the table to make a point at a restaurant.

Not everyone can be Aviva Drescher, however.

  • Aviva Drescher Leg

The reality star says her leg-throwing shenanigans on The Real Housewives of New York City season finale last night were not planned ... and she's not sorry.

After a heated argument at Le Cirque, in which she was called a phony, Aviva Drescher threw her leg, saying the prothesic limb is the only "fake" thing about her.

The way she seamlessly delivered that comeback, punctuated by the removal of the leg, led many to believe that the eye-popping stunt was premeditated.

Not the case, she says - but she'd do it again.

"I just thought the whole thing was funny," the RHONY cast member says. "I just think accusing somebody of making up an illness is funny."

"I think Heather [Thomson] standing up and yelling at me like a pit bull is funny. I think me getting angry and throwing my leg on the table was really funny and crazy."

"I get a hoot out of it," Aviva says, noting wittily, "but of course, I was definitely brought to the end of my rope, or the end of my leg so to speak."
